Is liberalism dead? Sean says “I sure hope so.” Founder and Editor of the acclaimed “American Spectator”, R. Emmett Tyrell, Jr. has just come out with a new book “The Death of Liberalism” in which he analyzes the past present and future of liberalism. He contends that liberals have “carried on as a kind of landed aristocracy, gifted but doomed. They dominated the culture and the politics of the country, unchallenged from the beginnings of the Cold War to the first Nixon administration.” What has occurred since? Has the political environment of the United States acted as a warm and fuzzy incubator in which Liberalism could grow, or has the country taken a sharp turn? In the book, Tyrrell advocates the latter, pointing to the fact that since the 2008 elections Democrats have shown their true colors by putting us an additional trillion dollars into debt when faced with an entitlement crisis.
The leader of this decline, President Obama, “is a stealth socialist” and a leader such as Obama creates an unsustainable state because “In the Constitution there is life. There is energy. In statism there is only stagnation and death.” “The good news,” says Tyrrell “is that conservatives always outnumber the liberals and now, in some surveys, they outnumber the moderates.” Tyrrell continued, “The moderates and conservatives have, in truth, been under assault by liberal programs for years, and they are now reasserting themselves.” What is our proof of this? Tyrrell offers, “In the election of 2010, they flipped 20 legislative chambers from Democratic to Republican and gained six governorships.”
